Get to know the snail racers from fun family film 'Turbo'

'TURBO.' Who knew snails could be fast and furious too?

MANILA, Philippines – Just how fast should you be to chase your dreams?

In his quest to become an Indy 500 racer, ordinary garden snail Turbo (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) goes from being a struggling slow poke to a neon bullet, racing through Los Angeles. A freak accident involving nitrous oxide alters his molecular structure, giving him a speed of up to 200 miles per hour.

As he and his brother Chet meet other snail racers along the way, they discover that there’s no speed limit when going after a dream.

Meet the members of the ‘Turbo’ crew here:
